Westland Publishing, India has announced the launch of Sunil Robert’s second book, entitled Bound to Rise – Radical alternatives for the new corporate era. This compelling work aspires to build on the bestseller, I Will Survive, which had captured the imagination of the young executive audience world over.

Gautam Padmanabhan, CEO of Westland said at the launch of the book, “Sunil has a unique skill that captures corporate experience and weaves narratives which can benefit the reader immensely. We are glad to be a part of his work that offers alternative paradigms to India’s corporate world. Above all, he consistently embodies values that he exhorts in his books as is evident in his exciting professional journey”.

Sunil’s debut work, I Will Survive – Comeback stories of a corporate warrior, was launched in June 2009 and was on the bestsellers list and went into reprint within two weeks. In contrast to the narrative style of his memoir, Bound to Rise is a prescriptive guide to find a purpose and thrive in the business world.
